Steamboat Powdercats offers AIARE (The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education) Level I avalanche courses typically in early January.
The AIARE Level 1 avalanche course is designed as an introductory “stand-alone decision-makers course” for those planning on traveling and recreating in avalanche terrain. Our instructors are AIARE trained and qualified. The 24 hours of course work focuses on the basic skills necessary to manage your risk in the winter backcountry.
For the 2021/22 season, we are offering 2 courses.
We have yet to publish our dates for these courses
These courses may be a hybrid of online curriculum, in-person meetings, and field experiences.
